This screenshot shows that there is 57+GB used on my iPhone.

However looking through the list and adding up the values comes to a maximum of 10GB (and that's an overestimation).

So, where is the other 40+ GB?

I have been deleting apps recently to try and clear space but every couple days it tells me the iPhone is running low on storage.

I feel like this is some sort of bug or something because I really don't know where the rest of the space is?

    The answer is probably there, it's just that the OP didn't bother to accept one or, if they didn't find one of the answers acceptable, ask follow-up questions. – fsb Nov 23 '16 at 15:34
  • @fsb the likelihood of getting any response beyond "why did you revive this old, out of date question" is very low when adding comments to a 3-year-old question. As it turns out the last paragraph of the lowest voted question is 1. still relevant and 2. what I actually did. But hardly useful. Oh well. – Fogmeister Nov 23 '16 at 15:48

    You have the option to add a bounty to that question. For this site, that's how you get attention to questions with no accepted answers. I would recommend you look into that. – fsb Nov 23 '16 at 16:00

If you can't find it from Storage Manager, I think it's some kinds of bugs or lags.

Have you tried to reset the settings? Sometimes, it might help.

  • I've been thinking of backing it up and doing a factory reset. Just worried that this erroneous data might also be backed up. Haha! Thanks, will give that a go today. – Fogmeister Nov 23 '16 at 8:49
  • OK, that seems to have worked. Thanks. I now have 54GB of free space :D Just to note. I did the "Erase all content and reset settings". – Fogmeister Nov 23 '16 at 10:27
